After9Sometimes, when we do something, it seems terribly difficult. Then, on another day, it goes very smoothly. This happens all the time, and it has to do with the combinations of energies at play. Because the way a moment unfolds is never just about our efforts, it’s also about what is possible in that moment. Is there energetic support, or is there energetic resistance? Long ago certain peoples understood this, so they would travel to places that would support, energetically, what they were trying to do: healing, for example, or fertility, or any number of things. To be able to read the energies of a situation lets us know what is possible. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In my first dream it’s like I’ve been observing a football game, and the football game, and the plays on it, are correlated to something that’s happening in the outer. So when they make a play there, there’s something else that is built on that in the outer.

But I observe that there’s one play in the game that was called wrong, that affects the outcome, or will affect the outcome, but they keep playing past that play. So I keep watching to see, since there’s something that happens out here that’s correlated to what happened in the game, I keep waiting to see, are they going to correct that?

And, when they do correct it, will they go back to kind of unravel things to where the play was called wrong, and start over with whatever they’re correlating that here with that? Or do they go on from when they finally correct it?

And it feels like there does come a point when they call attention to it, but it’s like probably seven or eight plays after the initial one. I’m just wondering, what are they going to do then, and how do you balance that? But I don’t really see what it is they do. That was the first dream.

John: Well, what’s interesting that you’re doing is you’re using something like what you perceive in the outer and, of course, the outer is there for revelational purposes, to try to show how the two sides of one’s self are meant to come together as a oneness – and that they appear to be separate.

In fact, we identify with the outer and don’t even recognize the inner, and, ultimately, one can come to realize that you can use, or look at this, as a constant dynamic between the two. And, in a way, that’s what one is doing and not realizing it when you’re watching a football game.

Now the tendency when you watch a football game is to get sucked in to where you’re using a certain kind of outer momentous nature to try to cheer on the consequences of whatever it is that you’re supporting as a team or something, in which case then you go up and down in relationship to the heart getting stabbed because of the predilections you have.

But then, also, there is a way of looking at the football game where you can see that the momentum and the mannerism that exists in the environment tends to determine the outcome, including even causing things to happen that shouldn’t happen. And that can work both positively and negatively.

You can see, for example, a team that can say have a type of home field advantage appear to get lucky breaks, and then once in a while you can see where even the home field advantage doesn’t necessarily help because there’s a manner, or demeanor, that exists and everything just seems to work out in some peculiar, unexpected, way that indicates that something else is in the equation.

So what’s interesting is to be able to be in a place inside one’s self to where this other, that’s in the equation, is something that you are able to access, or to touch, or to have a sense of. And to be able to see how that undulates, because you could see that it’s as if something is constantly being tested, or teased, or played with.

You can have a situation where the momentum can get over the top, and, so much so, that then all of a sudden it stops, and it aligns, and something rises up in an ebb and flow. But the momentousness of the vibration is such that you can tell that it is carrying a greater domination overall, it’s just having to take a step back, or something, for conduciveness, for balance purposes.

And it’s interesting if you could take and you can look, and you could see, everything as having this quality that is like this, as if there is all kinds of variables in life that are intertwining, and interacting, in a greater wholeness way that have to take into account each other, and do so. However, the outer particularities can be most confusing because one isn’t in touch with how the subtleness of things is dictating.

Now what’s also interesting is you can have, and you can access, a certain overriding sense inside of yourself about the way something should go. It doesn’t mean it will go that way. You may be wrong. You may be completely wrong, or you even may be right, but it just doesn’t work out that way because there’s something more, that is important, that needs to be factored into, and composite itself, at the situation.

So it’s really, really interesting to keep looking at something to see what is it trying to say? And why is it trying to say it? And where is it trying to go? And what is there in that that correlates to how you are, and where you’re at, in terms of what’s unfolding?

im442It is said that everything breathes, in its own way – even the universe itself. As humans, we can breathe on many levels. We can breathe on the level of our lower self, purely for oxygen, and we can breathe at the level of our higher self as a way to attune ourselves to the energies and cycles of the the whole of things. One is only in sync with the physical aspects of the planet, and the other can bring us into sync with the fullness of the breath of creation itself. One is limited in its possibilities, and the other is not. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The only other dream I remember, it’s like I was dreaming about the TV show “The Blacklist” with James Spader, and so it’s like his daughter and I are in one room and we want him to come, I don’t know whether it’s to help or whatever, but he’s in another room and he’s been tied up. He’s been captured and tied up, so he can’t come.

And it feels like anything else that happens in that dream has that same kind of energy, like we want something to be occurring but the person is not there, or they’re not available, or they’re bound up in some way.

John: Yeah, that’s adding more information to the situation, in that you have your identifications, and you sense your limitations. And, as you were telling that, I kept realizing one needs to say more about what that is in terms of the light; in other words, how is it that you breathe out light and then sweep that all back up again? How do you do that?

Well, this is done when you let go, and if, for example, you don’t have joy and you feel in pain by things, and you’re not able to touch life, you’re not able to be with the wholeness of things, in your out-breath you’re out-breath won’t be rejoicing. Your out-breath, as you’re breathing down, it won’t have an exhilaration quality to it.

This is what was behind teaching this, he was teaching this through a practice. He started off by going hah, hah, hah, and everybody laughing and laughing and laughing and laughing and laughing. And can you do that without it being forced? Can you actually literally let go to where everything is that kind of exhilaration, and joy, and exuding?

If you can, if you’re able to do that, that’s why laughter is so interesting because in the laughter is a letting go, and is something that propels, a true laughter, one that’s just a true belly laugh, propels into the outer a vibration of letting go. In other words, a laughter is a laughter because it takes and what it sees as a heaviness it is able to let go, and not let its mind get caught up in it. And it’s able to let go in a way so that the subtler aspects of the heart can see something, or are able to be subtle enough to see something so much more in terms of an overallness. And it has this tingle of laughter to it when it can do that.

You can’t laugh when you’re dead serious and you’re completely in your mind. There’s no laughter in that. You know, you can’t be distracted or anything because you’re all caught up then. But if you can just suddenly drop that, there is that laughter and that laughter effuses itself into the outer.

Now the reason why that heals things, laughter heals, is in that laughter there’s something kind of cosmic that happens in that the other person then breathes that in – and it relieves them. Do you see how big the breath is, the in-breath and the out-breath? They may start out as if they are individual lights, but they actually take in the wholeness of all that there is.

And so a person who is able to laugh and break the density, and the heaviness, of things, and it’s a genuine laugh, then it effuses into the atmosphere as another person in-breathes. It effuses into the atmosphere the breathing in of light. They breathe in a light and they can get it. They then are healed in a way in which they can let go of whatever the heaviness is that they had been carrying, only for a split second. I mean the laughter goes and then you’re back into breathing in the multiplicity of things that vie for attention, and you resort back to the fallback position of trying to grapple with that with your mind – and then your mind shuts off the heart.

That is why the training is generally a training towards working with the mind, to get the mind from grappling in its density. And then, when you do that, the process of doing that, the subtleness behind that, is the heart. You fall into the heart.

So that’s why you have all these breath practices, but nobody knows what they’re doing in the breath practice. Now the thing that is interesting is after the hah, hah, hah, then when he said okay, now without saying anything, feel that, inside yourself, as an out-breath. And you could feel that. You could feel yourself bringing down an expansive lightness, an auric light.

And then he said, okay, now breathe it back out, now breathe it in, and when you did that it’s exhilarating. And what you would find when you breathe like that is that you now are able to let go. That is what’s letting go, and what is it letting go of? It’s letting go of the mind, it’s stopping the mind.

And what are you experiencing? The essence of the soul, or the essence that is so subtle that it takes in the heart, and the heart takes in the world. Everything in the world is put in the heart. Only what is there in the world? There’s only this innerness which is this light.

In other words, the essence is this quality in which you bring something down which is everything, all that there is, in an out-breath. But if you don’t know that then how can you breathe it back in as light? And if you can do that, then there’s nothing ever going on. And then you go around able to have some experience, but you are having the experience with this quality of breath.

It’s the right breath. It’s the one breath. It’s the only breath. It’s the breath upon which everything is. It’s the one thing. You know, when Rumi makes his poems he talks about maybe there being 99 things that a person can do, and they can do all of those well. In other words, you can breathe down a certain momentous energy, and you can try to steer, and direct that in some sort of capacity, in a way that bicycles around in the myriad of things, maybe do 99 different things really, really well – but that’s not what you’re here to do.

What you’re here to do is to let go, to get into that breath, that quality, that condition that takes you to the emptiness. That’s what is meant behind those three words: Jalal, which is the masculine, which is the out-breath. Jamal, which is the feminine in-breath. Kamal is where you don’t need either one of them. They have come together as one, as a stillness, as an emptiness.

And to put that into words when that has happened, for there to be the emptiness or the stillness, that is because you’re only breathing light out, light in, inner coming into outer, and then that touches everything and gets swept right back up again. That’s how you’re supposed to breathe. You’re connected like that.

And so the key is to have all of it coming down, all of it going back, all of it coming down, all of it going back. And the out-breath and the in-breath come together as just a will of light, rolling in the light.

231sAs we make our way on our journey, there is always a new and further point up ahead. And that’s okay, because what is important is to be on the path itself. And at each stop along the way we can get a glimpse of what awaits us, as we come to understand that what we thought we knew was just a partial view. In the fullness of time comes the fullness of the whole picture. But we are a long way from home, so we just keep putting one foot in front of the other as we cover new ground and refine our navigation skills. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, what I’m experiencing is to begin with deemed to be of little significance. I am told that the specifics are stepping stones on the path, and the experiences can seem sensational to the part of me that is ready to give up.

I realize that it is not possible from where I am at, at this time, to have any appreciation for what is yet to be. Again, I’m talking about a sense of something, aware that what’s going on in the outer has little significance, but I guess what I’m saying is, I haven’t quite bridged the divide to something else. And so, apparently, I must be having to have an appreciation for what is yet to be, without actually having the experience of it – because I do know that the outer isn’t where the significance is at, in terms of something that’s aspiring to come through.

So from what I have already experienced I can sense the experience to be part of a passing wind, in other words, again, of no significance, which means that what that is is out of reach to what is so much more.

It is about this time, that coming from the perspective of the higher self, I am able to shift my attention to being receptive to that which is to come. I mean, I’m receptive to it, but I don’t know what it is. That’s the meditation dream. Isn’t that interesting?

So the significance is, to denote this latent inner depth as yet to be humbles me in the here and now, in other words, because I know it’s there, even though I’m carrying on the way I’m carrying on. And then I notice that any plan to do this, it doesn’t get you anywhere. In other words, if you looked at your condition as dire, and had grief about it, you could have all the prayer and watching you want, but can this lead to the recognition?

And, yet, maybe it can. But it is not done in my dream this way, as I have a sense of so much more. In other words, I don’t have the grief. I’m able to do this outside of that. I just naturally have, instead of sitting there in some sort of helplessness, I have a sense of so much more already and do not need to be smashed to let go, which is what a type of grief does. Everything about you is smashed. Being receptive, being accepted, and being still is opening me up to an inner awakening process that knows no bounds.

And, of course, I portray then as the meaning here. What I am experiencing is a precursor and threshold to so much more, which is there for me to appreciate, pre the fact. In other words, it’s like a sense of it. I mean it’s like a hope. I hold out for it, so it’s like pre the fact, and when I yield to the sense that what I am going through now is barely the start of the awakening process, when I yield to that, then there is hope. In other words, there’s not despair, or there’s not grief, because that doesn’t help me any.

And if that’s an aspect of prayer, well, okay, but prayer has a distinct definition to it, too, so that can create a stigma in terms of it being something that is reaching for something outside of one’s self. That’s what prayer kind of tends to do, when everything is within, so in that regard it’s a bit of a deviation. And, as far as watching, I’m already aware of my plight, I just don’t have the other, the higher self, that I know is outside of that, I just don’t have that at my disposal.

Or, to put it another way, what I am talking about is portrayed in the image that I have slid down a banister, in other words, this is a house that has multiple levels, and it has this spiral staircase coming down, and I’ve slid down the banister from the upper level floors all the way to the ground floor. And, in doing so, come to realize to my surprise, how wonderful life is.

In other words, it’s almost like coming to the bottom is scary, and it’s like staying up above in some sort of expansive space, and so I had pushed off from that because I guess I felt that I needed to avoid the myriad of things, and that the ground floor was lesser in some capacity. And when I came down, I found it to be wonderful. Of course this image is not possible if plans unfold in terms of how to do this. Such plans will be in the way.
